Race Sponsors

As we ramp up towards our 2016 Hampton Ladies Triathlon and Hopewell Rocks  I just want to give a shout out to a couple of our amazing sponsors without whom we could not organize the race. Tim Hortons, Sports Suds and Hammer Nutrition are 3 that go above and beyond each year and we love working with them. Please support our sponsors.

Racing into my 2nd Half Century

New challenge to freshen things up for me, rather than training for a specific event this year and putting all of my time and energy into one big race I thought I would try to cover as many race distances as possible in one calendar year. For the record I turn 50 this year so this seems like a cool and novel way to celebrate my 50th year along with a move up to a new age-group. The aim here is not to race the events as my calf muscles will scream objections at me and bring me to a grinding halt as they have done so many times over the last 10 years or so. The goal is to finish irrespective of time and enjoy the experience and camaraderie of running and racing.

I'm only 49 3/4 and they keep on branding me as 50!!

I’m only 49 3/4 and they keep on branding me as 50!!

Here is the schedule which will change and evolve as the year goes by and I’ll update as I go along. Competed events are in bold.

Other Wish List Events      
Time Trial Race      
100 mile Century Ride

Open Water Swim Race Sea Dogs Swim Sun 28 Aug  

The glaring omission from the list above is Ironman and I can’t fit it into my schedule with work and travel commitments this year but maybe I can come up with a substitute event later in the summer.

Well, there you have it, for me it will be interesting to see how deep I can get into this and what the challenges will be along the way, aside from Race Directing my own 6 events this summer thereby losing 6 weekends.
